The SashiMori (Japanese: サシモリ Sashimi moriawase) is a musical band in Splatoon 2. Originally they were a loud rock band, but of the four members, three of them (KARLA, Ryū-Chang, and Taichi Sawaberu) decided to ditch the domineering singer. They now have recruited a talented ten-year old Octoling DJ, PAUL, and formed a new band with both rock melodies and the unique sounds from the young Octolings' collection of ancient vinyl.


SashiMori is part of the rising tide of new bands emerging in this post Inklings vs. Octolings world we find ourselves in. They were originally a wall-of-sound style hard rock band, but decided to ditch their domineering singer. Now, the remaining three members—a carp, a largehead hairtail, and a scaly-foot gastropod—have recruited a 10 year old Octoling DJ (a true genius on the wheels of steel), to form a new band with a new sound, for a new generation.

Chopscrewey, the new track from SashiMori starts with the twin tones of rock melodies and string progressions competing for control of your ears. This group has no vocalist, so any lyrics you hear are samples their young DJ has cut into the track from his collection of ancient vinyl. Then we have Entropical, a track featuring bewitching female vocals entwined in endless struggle with scratchy rap lyrics. While these vocals are all comprised of interconnected samples, they offer a different sound than could ever be produced by the vocal cords of sea creatures.


  • KARLA is the band's bassist. They are a scaly-foot gastropod and are quite silent, remaining silent even in interviews. They easily endured the harsh vocals of the band before it broke up initially, and much about their life is unknown, including their age, and whether or not they eat anything.
  • PAUL is the band's DJ. He is an Octoling, and his favorite food is kelp and biscuits. He looks up to DJ Octavio and DJ Real Sole as inspirations, and is surprisingly good at mixing ancient records for his age.
  • Ryū-Chang (竜-Chang) is the band's drummer. He is a koi carp and comes from the base of Mount Nantai in an area with a mountain stream. He is 35 years old but has been a fan of punk rock since he was a teenager. In his free time, he enjoys drawing and playing Rainmaker on a team with Kuze and Blow Bottom.
  • Taichi Sawaberu (サワベル たいち) is the band's guitarist. They are a largehead hairtail and they participate in many activities outside the band.

  • The band doesn't have any vocalist, instead sampling from various interconnected voice clips said to come from ancient records. It is said that these vocals are different from any sea creature, implying that these may be human voices.
